I have 3 Live and Live Plus units. I have had them for about 1 1/2 years. I have the most recent updates installed on all three devices. I never had a problem other than an occasional loss of connection when using a wireless bridge. I cured that by running cables through out my home and adding an Ethernet switch. Now my home network is fully wired. That cured connection losses.
Also, I have 3 Windows 7 Pro computers in my Homegroup and all can act as Media servers, but I typically only use one of them. The one I use has mirrored boot drive and a mirrored data drive where the media files are all stored. About 6 months ago, after a Windows update session and subsequent reboot of my main media server, I started getting, on my WD TV LIve plus, the message: “There is no Media in the current folder”. This only occurs when attempting to stream music. Video an Photos always work. Up until now, I have always been able to get it working again by rebooting the computer and/or the Live Plus, or by un-sharing and re-sharing the music folders. Once I stopped and started my Norton Anti-Virus and the problem was cured until the next Windows update. I have also tried shutting down all streaming from the media server computer, restoring everything back to default settings. This worked once, then the next time it did not. I tried the suggestion by another poster to remove all folders from the music library, shutting down Windows Media player, stopping the Media player services, removing the media player database files in the Appdata folder, then rebooting and restarting everything and reconfiguring the music library. This worked once. The next time it did not work. None of these attempted fixes has repaired the problem permanently and none seem to work more than once.
This last time, yesterday, I tried all the above tricks and none of them restored music streaming. The TV Live Plus still shows the same error message. I even went so far as to backup my data drive with all the media files. Then I rebuilt the OS from scratch. Removed all the partitions from the boot drive, including the hidden one., then reloaded Window 7 Pro, Norton, and did all the updates on both. I got it to work for about 2 hours, then another Windows update notice showed up and I installed it. Again, I tried all the tricks as above, except reloading the OS and cannot get it to work.
As a sanity check, at the three locations in my home where I have the TV Live Plus units installed (none work for music but do for video and photo), living room, bedroom, and game room (for the grandkids), I have 3 Samsung TVs and 3 Bluray players (1 Samsung and 2 Denons). All six of these devices have media streaming capabilities and can access the music streaming on all my computers while the TV Live devices cannot. I much prefer to us the TV Live devices since the user interface is much more intuitive that any of the other devices.
To my way of thinking, this points to a software problem in the TV Live devices related to DLNA that the Windows updates exposed.
Any suggestions on where to go from here???
Just in case anyone is interested, I have a computer background that goes back to 1968 when I maintained Navy shipboard computers and tactical display systems. Also, I worked for 10 years as a Telecommunications Technician, and 15 years a systems developer for call center technology. I have extensive experience with large server systems, workstations, and networks.
